After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


One Year Memorial Fr. Gregory of Tennessee

Fr. Greogry Williams of Tennessee
 September 28, 2016 †

Forasmuch as we all are constrained to that same dread abode, and shall hide ourselves beneath a gravestone like to this, and shall ourselves shortly turn to dust, let us implore of Christ rest for him who hath been translated hence.  For such is our life here, brethren, a mockery upon the earth; when we have no being, to receive it, and when we have being to dissolve into corruption.  We are a fleeting dream; a breath which endureth not; the flight of a passing bird; a ship which leaveth no trace upon the sea.  Wherefore, let us cry aloud unto the King Immortal: Deem him worthy of thy bliss never-ending, O Lord.
from: The Order for the Burial of a Priest
